HEALTH from A to Z – ASTHMA!

Written by William of CrossDove Writers

            We writers all seem to be looking for ideas for long-term storylines and with a writer’s love of the alphabet and its challenges, I figure I am due to start a series which we will tackle a variety of ‘HEALTH ISSUES from A to Z’.

            Today we will start the series off with ‘A’ being ‘ASTHMA’!

            ASTHMA is a common inflammatory disease of the airways.

            ASTHMA can be found in close to 339 million people globally according to the 2018 Global Asthma Report.

            ASTHMA kills close to 1,000 people every day and the prevalence of asthma is rising.

            ASTHMA disproportionally effects and causes suffering for low- and middle-income countries.

            ASTHMA is noticeable by variable and recurring symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and shortness of breath.

            ASTHMA in beginning and mild cases is a reversible condition of airflow obstruction and bronchospasms.

            ASTHMA is thought to be set off by both genetically and environmentally based factors, both of which in early and mild cases can normally be controlled with medicines including certain types of inhalers.

            ASTHMA researchers and specialist have the tools to counter the devastating personal and economic impact of untreated and poorly managed asthma.

            ASTHMA, when left untreated, the constant chronic inflammation can lead the lungs to become irreversibly obstructed due to airway remodeling.

            The long-term effects of ASTHMA is considered to be generally good, especially for children with a mild case of the disease and mortality rates from ASTHMA has decreased over the last few decades due to better recognition and improvement of medical and holistic care.

            If you or someone you know continually has issues with getting short on breath from exercise, smelling something in the air or for whatever reason – it is recommended that a doctor is seen and make the request to check for any signs of ASTHMA!!

            That in a pinch is ASTHMA as done with Health from A to Z!

             ALWAYS REMEMBER – A person without good breathing, is a person with a life of constant caution’, so let’s do what we can, to learn what we can, to improve what we can.

BE AWARE – if you or anyone you know have any symptoms involving lung and breathing functionality, and they linger over and over while disrupting a lifestyle – then please ask questions and get it checked out by a reliable physician or pulmonologist.

We bid to all – smiles, prayers, blessings and steady breathing – Mr. William for wheezingaway.com & CrossDove Writers.
